Prabhupada: Ceto-darpana-marjanam [Cc. Antya 20.12]. And then bhava-maha-davagni… Then his material pangs will be over. This is the only medicine. Therefore chant Hare Krsna. Some way or other, let them have the chance of hearing, and then it will act as medicine
What keeps us bound to this world is our very deep rooted tendency to take credit for the good we do, to take credit for the good that we don’t do, and to give blame for the bad that we do.
This material world is actually meant for misery, just as a prison house is meant for punishment.
Material world is like a dream.
